We spent over a week in Floripa and went to several beaches including Praia Mole, Joaquina and Jurere International. I would recommend Backpackers Sunset hostel to any of my friends… it gets pretty busy, and the stairs will kick your ass…but the views of the sunset over Lagoa de Conceicao are priceless.
There are over 42 beaches on the island of Santa Catarina and I have my favorites in the North and in the South of the island. The weeks leading up to our time in Florianopolis felt rushed because we needed to meet up with our friend Jennifer, who flew in from San Francisco to join us on our trip. There were several things we didn~t get to see in South America… like the Amazon and Patagonia… but Florianopolis was always #1 on my list.
